Listening - Thursday, Jan 23rd 2020
- Haim - Days Are Gone (2013 Columbia)
- Child’s View - Funfair (1999 Bubblecore)
- Phonem - Hydro Electric (2000 Morr Music)
Too engrossed in a music project tonight to write much.
Haim’s Days Are Gone is a classic and I can’t wait to hear the one they’re teasing with new singles now. The last one felt like a weird misstep but the new singles seem to go back to what they do best: playing rock and roll very well.
So much I wanted to write about this relatively obscure Nobukazu Takemura album which comes at an interesting point in his solo career… another time!
Finally: Phonem’s Hydro Electric defines the IDM genre and is the best offering of its era. A nuanced view!
